"An almost perfect novel" of yearning, adventure, and redemption in the dying days of the Old West from the bestselling author of Peace Like a River ( St. Louis Post-Dispatch ). Minnesota, 1915 . With success long behind him, writer, husband, and father Monte Becket has lost his sense of purpose . . . until he befriends outlaw Glendon Hale. Plagued by guilt over abandoning his wife two decades ago, Hale is heading back West in search of absolution. And he could use some company on the journey. As the modern age marches swiftly forward, Becket agrees to travel into Hale's past, leaving behind his own family for an adventure that will test the depth of his loyalties and morals, and the strength of his resolve. As they flee the relentless former Pinkerton Detective who's been hunting Hale for years, Becket falls ever further into the life of an outlaw--perhaps to the point of no return. With its smooth mix of romanticism and gritty reality, So Brave, Young, and Handsome examines one ordinary man's determination to risk everything in order to understand what it's all worth, in "an old-fashioned, swashbuckling, heroic Western . . . [An] adventure of the heart and mind ( The Washington Post Book World ).
